This month we have a NEW release for you at our Graciellie Design stamp shop and this time we are also releasing a Special Edition Digital Paper Pack! So welcome to our celebration! As always you’ll have a chance to get our new stamps before anyone else does, so stay tuned until the end of this post to find out how to win!
We have 6 NEW STAMP SETS and our NEW Black & White Patterns Digital Paper Pack that we designed to match the new release. These papers are special because they are meant to be used for foiled backgrounds as well as custom colored backgrounds, since it can be edited very easily!
Today I am using one of my favorite sets from the new collection: Sent with a Prayer. I wanted to try out using digital stamps in a completely new way, so I created some foiled acetate embellishments using my laser printer and the images on this new stamp set, plus a Minc machine (or laminator). The result is stunning, and the pieces look just like the ones you would buy on a craft store!
To make these acetate embellishments:
1. Use acetate instead of paper to print -with a laser printer- your desired image. (You can resize these stamps to print them in different sizes, even using simple programs such as Microsoft Office Word).
2. Once printed cover the acetate sheet with any desired color of Decofoil Transfer Sheets and run it through a Minc machine (or laminator) in a low setting.
3. Remove the foil transfer sheet to reveal the foiled images and fussy cut them to create your clear embellishments.
It’s really that easy! TIP: The acetate may want to slide during the printing process. To prevent this from happening use a smooth cloth to rub the acetate.
